TVLine Items: Is GH Welcoming Another One Life Vet? Plus: Downton Season 3 Scoop and More!
As reported by suds blog WeLoveSoaps.net, Florencia Lozano is slated to bring her tough-as-nails Llanview attorney, Tea Delgado, to Port Charles this spring.
A spokesperson for the soap could not confirm the report to TVLine.
Lozano’s One Life journey ended with her pregnant character determined to take down Roger Howarth’s Todd Manning for “murdering” her husband, Victor Lord Jr. (played by Trevor St. John). Howarth, as we first reported, has been made a contract player on GH, alongside his on-screen offspring Kristen Alderson (Starr).
In other General Hospital news, showrunner Frank Valentini has revealed via Twitter that daytime vet Finola Hughes has once again been put on contract at the ABC soap. The actress recently reprised her role as Anna Devane when her daughter, Robin (Kimberly McCullough), was “killed.”

• Downton Abbey executive producer Rebecca Eaton recently spoke with the Orlando Sentinel about the PBS breakout hit’s upcoming third season — and it sounds like things are about to get cray-zay in the titular Yorkshire-based estate. “Somebody will be born, and somebody will die,” she revealed. “Somebody pretty key in the cast, unfortunately [is] not going to make it.” Eaton also confirmed that “Matthew and Mary do get married.”
• Rosie O’Donnell and Dan Akyroyd have booked guest spots in separate episodes of Happily Divorced, EW.com reports. The latter will play a potential love interest for Fran Drescher’s character, while the former drops by as an old friend of the leading lady. Both episodes of the TV Land comedy will air in May.
• Fox is pulling the long-running COPS from its Saturday schedule for the foreseeable future in order to maximize its sports coverage. While a rep for the reality series tells Vulture (who first reported the news) that the network is merely “cutting back [its] order,” the reality is that 28 of the 32 Saturdays between April 14 and Dec. 8 will consist of some semblance of college football, MLB, NASCAR and UFC programming.
